Izzy’s Best Breakfast

The best breakfast for runners? In my opinion it’s definitely porridge! With the high fibre content, the slow releasing carbohydrates and the full feeling it gives you, makes it a real winner before any day of training!!

Here are 5 ways to jazz up your porridge for the training day ahead:

1.Carrot cake porridge: add grated carrot and cook on the hob for 3 mins. Top with walnuts,pecans,cinnamon,nutmeg and Greek yoghurt to finish.

2.Zoats: a great way to sneak more green veg into your day, add grated courgette(zucchini) to your porridge (I promise you can’t taste it). Cook on the hob for 3 mins. Finish with a drizzle of honey.

3.Anti-oxidant booster:blueberries,rasberries,strawberries and pomegranate. Helps get rid of any nasty colds and flus.

4.Choco-loco: add 1 tsp of organic cocoa powder and a vanilla pod to your porridge. Perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!

5.The American way:Add a tablespoon of peanut and jelly (organic jam) to your porridge after it is cooked. It’s a classic combo.
